The Edington Advent Concert
Friday 1st December
Time 7pm (NB earlier start time)
We’re absolutely delighted to announce that the 2017 Edington Advent concert will be given by the world-famous choir of New College, Oxford. Paul Brough, deputising for Choir Director Robert Quinney while he is on sabbatical, will be conducting. Paul (like Robert) is a past participant in the Edington Music Festival as well as being one of the most well-known choral directors in the UK through his relationship with the BBC Singers.
The New College choir numbers around 30 voices, including trebles, and is one of the most celebrated and acclaimed choral groups in the UK, with a timbre and style which are instantly recogniseable. It has been around since the late 14th century, when William of Wykeham set up a choral foundation within his ‘New’ College. Since then it has regularly sung chapel services, and continues to do so during the University terms. It now broadcasts, records and performs the world over, and has also built up an enviable discography, numbering over one hundred CDs, presenting choral music from all corners of the repertory. The range of music sung by the Choir is one of its defining features, making involvement in its work particularly rewarding for singers. In the last two years the choir has visited the USA, France, Germany, Spain, Italy and Cyprus. From time to time, the Choir teams up with leading instrumental ensembles for live and recorded performances.
